Need paint scheme ideas...

Post by MShark » Fri Jul 12, 2013 2:51 am

My stock Savage GT3 body is all beat up so I thought I'd pick up a new body to experiment with. Got myself a Pro-line Desert Militia body.

I was thinking to try out some Camouflage or some rusty, poorly maintained old truck look but it might be a little too complicated granted this is my first time painting one of these shells. So that's out of the picture.

I've been looking online a lot for some color schemes to go by or some patterns but nothing has really popped out. Not a big fan of flames. Simple straight lines will do. I was also thinking a blood splatter pattern on the rear wheel quarter panels but can't seem to find an appropriate vinyl mask for that.

Anyway, the simpler the better. thanks!

I'm about to do the same. I searched ebay for "RC paint mask" and was surprised at the number of results. There are so many, I didn't have time to check'm all out.

I'd like to try the liquid mask. Check this out.

Ya I bought a bottle of liquid mask already but haven't yet bought the paint yet. Don't know what design to paint. I'll sit it out for a while maybe something might hit me.

I'm thinking maybe just a simple color combo for now. Silver and black seem to entice me. (Just like my 2 BMW M3's) In the meantime I'll be on the lookout.

I haven't done any paint quality research, but check out "Spaz Stix".
They've got some very cool colors
